About Us

API was formed in 1991, by a group of former and active law enforcement professionals for the purpose of providing better private security and investigative services to businesses and individuals at affordable rates.

With more than thirty years of experience in the security and investigations business, API has amassed private and professionally trained associates that combine more than fifty years of law enforcement experience. API recruits and trains top professionals, of which, many have completed years of law enforcement education at local major universities. Most, if not all, of API's associates, have undergone training through the OPOTC (Ohio Peace Officer's Training Council) and all armed officers are OPOTC trained and certified in firearms safety. API offers unarmed and armed patrol and fixed security services, as well as, uniformed and plainclothes officers to meet our clients' needs. API also provides marked cruisers, with GPS capability and patrol cars based upon the clients' needs. Additionally, API offers many other services, including: Investigative services, covert and CCTV systems and installations, background checks, pre-employment screening, and free security consulting services. API is licensed and certified by the State of Ohio, Public Service Commission and the Department of Homeland Security. API maintains aggregate liability insurance coverage in the amount of three million dollars for the protection of our clients.

API, throughout the years, has provided services for many "Fortune 500 companies" as well as small businesses and private individuals. API is proud to have been a recipient of the 2010 Consumer Choice Award.
